Mom, Birthday & Teen Mom 2 (random I know)

Image
Today I am up early ... Thursdays are always SO early because we get up early to get the girls ready for school, so if you ever wonder why on Thursdays I am a zombie that is why lol. I have been having major sleep issues and can't go to sleep before 1am!! I just can not function on 5 hours of sleep...at least not as a nice person anyway. Yesterday I didn't leave the house, all day! I decided to stay in, clean, do laundry, do some work on the computer, clean out drawers, etc. It felt good to not put make up on or fix my hair for a day I must admit...and to just be able to get things done! I think we all need and deserve those days every once in a while!
Today, a local UK Fraternity that has done wonderful charity work around the city, is being recognized and honored for their hard work with a total makeover for their basement in the frat house... awesome! Even better, my mom was chosen as the Interior Designer ... Cute little work picture haha
I am going to support her this …

A Great Time to Buy!

Watch this short clip on the improving economic growth forecast for 2011! Now is a  great time to buy. Contact me if I can help.

The Cut

Image
As talk of a buyers' strike begins to filter through the media, the already striking buyers shrug their shoulders and hope the noobs will at least have the decency to bring some pizza with them to the picket line. Though in all reality a picket line gives a sense of presence, this strike is marked by the lack of anybody baring their arse anywhere.

If you want to know if there's a strike on or not, just ask the agents. Tales of desperation and woe are becoming commonplace; agents are cold calling people they had a conversation with at an open house two years ago; agency principals are throwing their young and stupid under the bus; and there are prayers for Japanese radiation to float towards Australia and fall as rain upon the graves of the recently departed - c'mon in this market who wouldn't sell to a reanimated corpse?

In Tasmania, the writing is on the wall is visible to some. Dean Chamley, who has run a successful flat fee real estate business across the North-West o…

Ballard Designs

Image
I got the Ballard Design catalog over the weekend and I spotted these curtains.




I think they look a lot like my Ikea curtains and Lowe's curtain rods. Mine cost about $64 total. The Ballard curtains are $70 for one panel.

I also love this  rug and considered it for my dining room. I like the idea of something washable that I could rinse with the hose! That would be perfect for the crayon and juice and other items my mess makers may get on it. Unfortunately, the sizes don't work for my dining room. But look at the prices...what a deal! I may get the small one for in front of my kitchen sink.



When I Grow Up...

I know I have shared this on facebook... I stole it from a friend...but it always makes me laugh and on this nasty "Winter but it is Spring what the heck is going on" day outside... I thought everyone might could use a good laugh too....

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be perfectly clear on my child's homework illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm.

This drawing is of me selling a shovel.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Harrington And just for fun... in case you haven't alread seen... our KY Wildcats are pretty much famous and all the celebs want to be us ha... even Jay-Z for petes sake! LOVE it!
Happy Tuesday Friends!

Construction

If you're a long term reader here, and no I'm not going to unfurl a list of every government agency, bank and brothel who send regular traffic here, but let's just say if you're in the Daily Planet and reading this site, you ain't getting value for money. All you real estate agents and bankers, you should only read this on work time - not at the knock shop.

But yeah, long termers. One of my earliest old gold standards was rambling about the levels of dwelling construction against the numbers of people being added to the Tasmanian population. Now depending on your time frame and we'll use the exact ABS figures, so the population is right, from 2003 to 2009 Tasmanian builders were pumping out a new dwelling per 1.62 people being added to the state population, when the average was at 2.4.

Now, the boys at the HIA have been notorious for using the arbitrary figure of Tasmania being 200 houses short a year, why not 225? Why not 175? Well who would know, maybe it's…
